The four AXION X-raid teams impressed with a very good team effort, today. In the longest special stage of the 2016 Dakar, around the Bolivian city of Uyuni, all the four pairings made it to the top10.

Nasser Al-Attiyah (QAT) / Mathieu Baumel (FRA) were the fastest of the quartet and finished fifth – followed by Nani Roma / Alex Haro (both ESP), Orlando Terranova / Ronnie Graue (both ARG) and Mikko Hirvonen (FIN) / Michel Périn (FRA) in the positions six, seven and eight. In addition, Al-Attiyah (fourth) and Hirvonen (sixth) also defended their top-10 positions in the overall standings.

Tomorrow, the seventh stage will take the field back to Argentina. And on Sunday, the teams will spend their Rest Day at Salta. However, the service Teams will have to cope with a massive distance, tomorrow, and will arrive in the bivouac only late in the evening. At the same time, the pairings also will have to cover 817 kilometres, with the special stage distance amounting to 481 kilometres.
